Guilherme Paulus is an investor in the tourism industry in Brazil. He is the co-founder of tour Operator Company named CVC. Recently, Guilherme Paulus made a decision to diversify his business by venturing into the real estate industry. In 1995, he ventured into hospitality business by acquiring the Rio Grande do Sul hotel in Gramado. The business performed well and a decade later he bought Foz do Iguacu, Parana resort. This led to the creation of GJP restaurants and resorts across the country. Visit Guilherme Paulus at Forbes for more info.
Formation of these resorts gave him the thought to start a construction company. This is because the hotel had a vast field covering approximately two and a half million square meters. The land also had a golf course inside it. During an interview with EXAME.com, he hinted that they had more than enough area to build. He championed the initiative to kick-start the idea and earn additional cash.
The project will be launched by Paulus Guilherme which hosts Iguassu Village Golf homes together with GJP Incorporadora & Construtora. It consists of one hundred and nine housing units covering about one hundred and sixty thousand square meters. The design caters for a leisure club coupled with a gourmet area, ballroom, game room, gym, playground and a courtyard. All these households will be using the hotel’s golf course. The project will follow strict pre-determined standards although each owner will build their own houses. However, the company will fully furnish the clubhouse.
The estimated cost of the project lots ranges from four hundred and eighty thousand to one million eight hundred reais. Each house will occupy between eight hundred and one thousand eight hundred square meters. Although there is a go slow in the real estate industry, he is still optimistic. He is also planning to construct three more housing apartments in Gramado, Aracaju, and Maceio where the company owns the land.
According to Guilherme Paulus, middle-income earners with the ability to buy homes are estimated to be about twenty-five to thirty million people in Brazil. These people will be happy to live in a secure and cool environment facing the golf course. To make the business a going concern, Guilherme Paulus employed Abilio Torres as the sales director of GJP Incorporadora.
